Gradual ombre has been a nail trend for awhile and it shows no sign of abating. You take 5 shades of the same color (purple, pinks, blues, whites, any color really) that work well together moving from light to dark and you paint your nails in the order of gradient color.

This is the perfect nail trend for those of us who have way too many nail polish bottles lying around, but if you don't, then you can take a couple shades that are complementary, then lighten each of them with a bottle of white polish.
